Ethiopia is signatory for both Convention on Biological Diversity and Cartagena protocol on Biosafety. The country has ratified Biodiversity Convention and Cartagena Biosafety by Proclamation No. 98/1986 and 362/200 respectively. Accordingly, Ethiopia prepared its own Biosafety law in 2009 with Proclamation No. 655/2009. Due to the fact that the 2009 law does not support transaction of GMO for confined, continued and environmental release, it was amended as Amended biosafety Proclamation No. 896/2015 by the Parliament.
